Abstract

Pulmonary embolism (PE) remains a big challenge - widely under diagnosed and

inappropriately treated with suboptimal outcomes. Rapid and accurate diagnosis of

pulmonary embolism improves survival and quality of life. Early treatment decreases

mortality and the likelihood of thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension. It is imperative to

consider pulmonary embolism as a diagnostic possibility and order the appropriate

diagnostic tests and institute timely and effective therapy. Higher level of index of

suspicion clinches the diagnosis as the presentation may be atypical and not 'classical'.
